Governor Sarah Palin is now officially a grandmother following the birth of her daughter’s new baby boy.
Wired PR News.com – The daughter of Alaskan Governor, and ex-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has given birth to a son. As reported by E! Online, Bristol Palin gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday in Alaska.
A relative of Bristol Palin was quoted in the report as stating to People Magazine after the birth, “We think it’s wonderful… The baby is fine and Bristol is doing well. Everyone is excited.”
Bristol is the eldest of daughter Sarah Palin, who received nationwide attention after the announcement of her pregnancy during the presidential campaign while she was still 17. She and boyfriend Levi Johnston, who is the father of the baby, previously announced plans to marry sometime in 2009.
Johnston’s mother was recently in the news for an arrest related to alleged drug charges.
